A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell (1990)

0.5/5

In a post-apocalyptic world, dinosaurs have for some reason returned. Well, they aren’t really dinosaurs, just big animals portrayed by undescriptive cheap puppets. Radiation has killed off most of the survivors, and those who live, are now barbarians. Including her heroine, Lea, who is a barbarian but also sometimes, a nymphoid.

A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell is a Troma film and they are sure to show you that is the prologue features scenes from other Troma films that took place before the war, and the setting for the film is Tromaville. I’m not a fan of Troma films. I find them annoying, but they usually have a level of entertainment. This film does not.

It feels more like a showreel a teenager did to showcase his lackluster talent for makeup and puppetry and okay talent with stop-motion animation (for a teenager). There are long scenes that involve nothing more than lizard men frolicking about or “dinosaurs” doing their business.

There might be a plot, but the audience isn’t privy to it. I despise when rape is used in films like these to add some kind of danger or “character development,” and since our protagonist is a beautiful woman, the dinosaur scenes (which feature effects that were outdated in the 1970s), are just filler between those rape or attempted-rape scenes.

What makes it extra disgusting is the fact that the film begins with her explaining how she is a nymphomaniac, but there is nothing to support that in the film. The only sexual content is grotesque men trying to rape her. So what kind of message was the writer/director Brett Piper sending with the “when my juices get flowing, I become a nymphoid” line? Not a good one.

Piper also made Bikini Girls on Dinosaur Planet (2005). I think I will give that one a miss.
